Neo-Hellene Poets, an Anthology of Modern Greek Poetry, 1750-2018

Beautiful woman, your playful laughter rises

like a futile sound that makes no echo

in the haughty heart connected

to those innocent and silent smiles

bestowing joy, or to those other souls

that cover grief with silence,

and those that perish secretly

in ancient yellowed images

and though they hardly smile at all

they yet shine deep in silenced eyes

like dark reflections spreading in the dusk

in the forlornness of the sea
